What They Said
It was a great experience for all of us. We instinctivly felt it was the right place for our film and were thrilled to know that you did too.
It was great to be made so welcome in Harlem by everyone we met, and to have our eyes opened to a neighbourhood with both a rich and vibrant history and a hugely promising future. It was very hard to leave… and I am sure we will all be back.
James Marquand, Award-winning filmmaker (UK)
I really enjoyed myself and the films that I saw … I’ve been to many film and theater festivals, where there will be something great and then something that’s not so great, but you are really, really good at what you do.
Marie Scott, Filmmaker and filmgoer (US)
Attended Youth shorts at Hi to see my son's film, and was more than overwhelmed by the quality, art,
and emotional power of each and every film on the program. It was, by far, the best collection of shorts I'd ever seen--at any film festival, or anywhere, for that matter, and truly international! Bravo to Hi for their outstanding festival. Plan to see more next year. Thanks for a great experience.
“…I want to thank you very much for these five amazing days and so many [well] made, touching and passionate films - accompanied by the opportunity to make some really nice personal contacts and friends!
Georg Jungermann, Award-winning filmmaker of Evolution (Germany)
Harlem International Film Festival gave me the confidence in myself and as an artist to always create stories I believe in…
